***Zombieland*** or ***Shaun of the Dead***.....( I usually avoid anything with W.H. in it but in Zombieland being a jerk helped him act. )

Zombies hate fast food. If Zombies chase us and I can’t outrun you I will trip you!

I have been trying to think and I don’t think I have ever seen a really good zombie movie.

I would add “I Walked with a Zombie” (1942) and “White Zombie” (1932, with Bela Lugosi).

Though not a movie, “Walking Dead” is doubtless the greatest zombie tale around.

An SUV I often see parked along my dog walking route has a placard on the rear window that says, “The hardest part of the zombie apocalypse will be pretending I'm not excited." I'm not sure what it means but it always makes me smile.

He really stretched the definition of Zombie on a few of those. How in the hell does he leave off Return of the Living Dead. Ghosts of Mars!?! Leaving out it not being much if a zombie movie, it was a terrible movie period. These would be in my top ten that are not on the list.

Fido

the first 3 Return if the Living Dead movies

I even like Diary of the Dead better than several on that list.

Hey, this film (Ghosts of Mars) had Natasha Henstrick in it. Absolutely beautiful woman, and later an alien hybrid in the Species series, esp. Part 1.

Find the Bob Hope quote on zombies. In a movie with Richard Carlson, in which Carlson was describing a mob of people with souless eyes, strange movements, etc., to which Hope replied:

“OH, LIKE DEMOCRATS!”

I just read Orson Wells book Animal Farm. One of the critter could have been a Zombie I suppose.

I don’t like any modern zombie comedies except for Shaun of the dead and return of the living dead.

Walking dead is good.

The classic, Dawn of the Dead. I also dislike WH but I agree and that was my first thought when I watched Zombieland, he was right for that part.

Also Like Resident Evil original
Armies of Darkness, somewhat Zombie but not completely
Dawn of the dead, both versions.
Land of the Dead
Return of the Night of the Living Dead Original, funny...

A bit of a stretch, but “Re-animator” is good undead fun!

Also Matango is an interesting Japanese movie where the characters turn into mushroom people. Not quite zombies, but they are slow and persistent like zombies.

There are some international movies that should make the list. After NOLD, for many years the Italians really owned the genre, to the point that when Romero did DOTD, the Italian director horror Dario Argento edited it, removing the humorous parts, and re-released it as “Zombi” to European audiences.

Some other Euro-zombie and Asian greats:

The Horde (2009) France
Versus (2002) Japan
Cemetery Man (1994) Italy (definitely in my top 10)
Demons and Demons 2 (1985) Italy-Germany
Tokyo Zombie (2005) Japan
City of the Walking Dead (1980) Spanish-Italian
Bio Zombie (1998) China (the Chinese Shaun of the Dead)
The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1974) England
Stacy: Attack of the Schoolgirl Zombies (2001) Japan (broke lots of new ground in the zombie genre.)

City of the Living Dead (1980) Italian, but filmed in the US
The Beyond (1981) Italy (in the top 10)
Tombs of the Blind Dead (1972) Portugal (a four film series)
Finger of Doom (1972) Shaw Brothers Hong Kong
G.P. 506 (2008) Korea
Wild Zero (2000) Japan (Zombies and Rock ‘n’ Roll, specifically the Japanese equivalent of The Ramones)

(Importantly, the Japanese have really gone nuts and are making ultraviolent but silly gore movies almost difficult to describe, many of which involve zombies and girls with machine parts.)

"Though not a movie, “Walking Dead” is doubtless the greatest zombie tale around."

I agree. February can't come fast enough.

As far as movies go, I like the remake of "Dawn of the Dead." One of my all-time favorite movie lines is Ving Rhames:" If I put my foot up your a##, would that be your problem?"

JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS and

SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD.
Nice Ray Harryhausen walking skeletons in these two.

The 2004 DOTD remake is more awesome for the DVD news segment with the late Richard Biggs ( Babylon 5’s Dr. Steven Franklin ) as a news reporter covering the zombie outbreak as things go from bad to worse. He died not long after filming it. The piece is just as good as the movie.

Ha! “Ghosts of Mars” was the stupidest, most boring POS movie I ever saw. I turned it off half-way through. A sad offering from a once-talented director.

You guys are all wrong - the BEST Zombie movie EVER was “The Ghost Breakers” with Bob Hope.
